Police in Texas who made a major drug bust during a traffic stop on Monday found a lot more than they were expecting.
Officers in Waco pulled over a 1998 Toyota Land Rover around 11pm for a traffic violation and, after a search of the vehicle, found 2.5 grams of methamphetamine under the vehicle’s driver’s seat.
However a further search of the car found 29.5 grams of methamphetamine in the purse of the passenger, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, according to NBC.
Castaneda was also arrested and taken into custody, however while being transported to jail she told police there was a gun concealed in her vagina.
Once at the jail, a female officer searched Castaneda.
The weapon had a round in the chamber and a full magazine.
‘It is conceivable that the gun could have gone off inside our suspect and that would have been deadly because of the proximity to internal organs,’ said Waco Police Department spokesman Sergeant Patrick Swanton.
Castaneda has been charged with violating state concealed firearms laws by hiding a fully loaded, snub-nosed handgun in her vagina, police said Tuesday.
She was also charged with methamphetamine possession.
Garcia, the driver, was charged with possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone because the traffic stop was within 1,000 feet of the school, which is a drug-free zone.
